Well here we are. The Day After Christmas.
Back in Blue Sunday's time and again, at the end of pregnancy.
The days of living memories: days of making memories.
10 days where the past and the present will be in particularly sharp focus.
2 years ago, right about now, I was just starting on this road. I had gotten off the phone with the doctor and gotten the awful 1:5 odds in the mid afternoon.
All day today, I just keep poking Take Two, waiting for him or her to poke back. Take Two is well behaved and always does poke back.
2 years ago tomorrow was my last scan (and the amnio).
All day tomorrow is final baby prep- cleaning the house, buying a few last minute things.
2 years ago New Year's Eve was my first night of drinking since finding out I was pregnant. The diagnosis was confirmed and the termination set. I was closing the book on acting, feeling and truly being pregnant.
This NYE I will have closed or be closing the book on the last year without holding a child of my own.
2 years ago, 1/4/12 was my termination date.
1/4/14 is my due date.
See it all the time
Where someone's last goodbye
Blends in with someone's sigh
Cause someone's coming home
In hand a single rose
And that's the way this wheel keeps working now
That's the way this wheel keeps working now
John Mayer, Wheel
(I know I already used this one, but I just keep coming around to the same theme)
